There’s all types of love in the world but there’s nothing better than puppy love. Especially when you’re kissed by the University of Connecticut’s mascot Jonathan the Husky. Only a little over a year old, the adorable black and white pup has captured our hearts while instilling fear in both snowmen and our enemies.

Major endorphin rush and goofy smile ensued. And in spite of his handlers wishes, I snagged one of my favorite selfies of all time.
You can follow Jonathan on Facebook, where you can find lots of cute shots of him playing with his predecessor or updates of his daily activities, like attending an obedience class.
